 The Organic Coffee Co. is one of the coffee brands owned by the Rodgers Family Co. They are a privately held, 100% family-owned and operated company who pride themselves on offering premium, sustainable, fair and direct trade coffee and tea. They grow their own coffee on 6 biodiverse, organic farms in Panama and Mexico. By growing their own coffee on biodiverse shade coffee farms, they are a carbon negative company. The Rodgers Family Co. believes that Fair Trade Certified is not enough. They pay farmers much more than the minimum $1.31 per pound. In addition, the Rodgers Family Co. imports their coffee directly from farmers with whom they have an established relationship, rather than through the commodities market. Lastly, their Community Aid Program spends more than $1 million a year to improve the education, housing, health and sanitary conditions for workers and their families on every farm where they do business.
